The primary role of all of Emmanuel’s musical groups is to encourage and lead the people of God in praise and the proclamation of the Gospel.  We offer the following to anyone who wishes to share their musical gifts.  Please contact the Director of Music for more information – or just show up to a rehearsal!

For those of high school age and older, the Chancel Choir sings most Sundays.

Weekly Rehearsal Schedule:
Sundays After Worship

Wednesdays 7:30PM

Singers may come to either or both rehearsals. A second rehearsal gives singers the option of coming for extra work, or to make up for a missed session.

For vocalists and instrumentalists of almost any age, the Praise Band leads modern music selections at occasional Sunday morning Services and leads the Rejoicing Spirits Service the 3rd Sunday of each month.




For musicians of almost any age, vocalists and instrumentalists add a special touch to our worship, especially during the summer months and on festival occasions.

For those of senior high school age and older, the Handbell Choir rehearses Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 and offers selections throughout the year and on festival occasions.

You don’t need to know much about music, just how to count! Before long, with a little coaching you’ll be ringing 2, 3 or even 4 bells.

Wednesdays 8:30 – 9 PM

For anyone who wants to get more joy from music and for those who know a little or nothing about reading music. We will start from the beginning, which is the best place to start. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can learn the basics!

The Organ

At the center of Emmanuel’s music program is the M.P. Moller pipe organ installed in 1928. The instrument went nearly unchanged for fifty six years, until 1984 when it was rebuilt by Bruce Shultz of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A new three-manual Austin console was added in addition to twenty two new ranks of pipes. The dedicatory recital was played by Diane Meredith Belcher on October 31, 1984. In 1998, ten digital ranks were added by the Walker Technical Company of Zionsville, Pennsylvania. At present, the organ consists of fifty ranks divided among the Great, Swell, Choir and Pedal divisions.
